The Curriculum

 

We offer a broad-based curriculum aimed at the development of the whole person – Mind, Body, Heart and Soul– intended to help children and young people gain the knowledge, skills and attributes needed for life in the 21st century, including skills for learning, life and work.

We embrace each child individually; nurturing a zest for learning, a willingness to take risks, and instilling a curiosity about the world as we prepare our students, to become principled, productive, and healthy young adults.

Teachers are able to discern, inquire and understand students’ learning processes through collecting evidence and constructing knowledge systematically to engender practical wisdom.
